: well, timing is everything in life, right? i mean, certainly the obama administration would have wanted to see these relatively strong job numbers three months ago because the standard sort of political wisdom is that you needabout six months ab job improvement for people to actually feel better and for t incumbent to benefit. ws is coming a little late for the president. it's ironic, whoever wins is going to inherit an improvingth job market. >> tom: of course it comes plenty of early voting already under way across the united states. in washington, d.c. tonight, it's our bureau. chief, darren gersh. >> reporter: thanks, tom. >> tom: still ahead, the new york city marathon is cancelled. what it means for advertisers of this world class event. that encouraging employment report didn't do much for stocks on wall street. stocks oped higher, but sellers took over.d the dow closed down 139 points, the nasdaq lost almost 38 points, the s&p closed off 13. for the week, the dow fell 0.1%. the nasdaq was down 0.2%. the s&p gained 0.2% this week. we'll talk more about the marts a little later in
the obama administration tried to mislead americans about the terror attack in libya. 44% say yes, 47% say no. >> the american people deserve the truth. >> four republican senators today fired off a letter to the president, demanding to know, "what steps you and your administration took or failed to take before, during and after the terrorist attack to protect american lives." >> they are stonewalling us. i think they are trying to run out the clock until this election. >> republican lindsey graham today sent a separate letter to tunisian officials requesting they give the u.s. government access to al harzi, the only person in custody over the benghazi attack. >> i frankly am offended by the administration not being honest with the american people. and sharing any information with congress. >> senator gram told me that tunisian government responded he could submit questions in writing to the suspect and they would try to get answers. he said it's not good enough. he got tunisian foreign minister on the phone and graham vowed he would put pressure on the tunisian government and is call tong
of climate change, either, by this administration. >> that is true. certainly the obama administration has put forward a carbon tax plan early in the administration, but that ended up floundering in congress -- put forward a carbon cap plan. he has done other things in terms of increasing auto fuel efficiency, things in terms of back door, policies, but he clearly has not taken on this problem the way he had promised to back in 2008. >> you have written about the need for more research into climate change so that we can understand where these storms come from, but also more comprehensive response from america in terms of dealing with its infrastructure. we have seen the infrastructure problems caused by hurricane sandy. >> that is clearly true. you have 3.7 million americans who live within just a few feet of high tide. those are the people who are always vulnerable when you have a big storm like this one. you have new york city youth -- losing huge parts of its infrastructure, losing electrical service, losing subways because they were flooded. it is not just a matter of trying to prepare
to realize that this is our katrina. >> the obama administration responded to complaints that fema was late on the scene and amounted the deputy administrator will be there tomorrow and fema wants everyone who needs assistance to call. 1- 800-621-fema or disasterassistance.gov. >>> president obama was back on the campaign trail in wisconsin, but still focused on storm recovery back east. the trail. >> in new jersey yesterday and saw the devastation and you really get a sense of how difficult this is going to be for a lot of people. but you know, we've been inspired these past few days. because when disaster strikes, we see america at its best. the consumer in these times all seem to melt away. there are no democrats or republicans during the storm. just fellow americans. >> his response to the storm has earned him big praise. 78% approve of how he's dealt with the hurricane. images and headlines like this have helped, too, featuring chris christie of new jersey on a bipartisan storm damage tour together from wednesday. but not everyone's a fan of the federal agencies that handle disasters l
. bill: also, martha, there are questions about how the obama administration handled the terror attack in libya in the early hours and days. senior counterterrorism officials who could have saved lives there, left out of the loop? >> the security in benghazi was a struggle and remained a struggle throughout my time there. the situation remained uncertain and reports from some libyans indicated it was getting worse. diplomatic security remained weak. in april there was only one u.s. diplomatic security agent stationed there. esterol as part of a heart healthy diet. that's true. ...but you still have to go to the gym. ♪ the one and only, cheerios bill: this just in, fox news alert. governor romney weighing in on the october jobs report. here is the statement in part. the increase in the unemployment rate is sad reminder that the economy is at virtual stand still. the jobless rate is higher than it was when president obama took office and there are still 23 million americans struggling for work. we are live on the campaign trail with governor romney in a matter of minutes. when we get c
and where he said the obama administration sold chrysler to the italians. he didn't. he gave it to them. the only thing they paid up front was some technology they transferred. did not even pay any money for it. gerri: you're saying possibly the ad is to kind. >> yes. it is. it is true that china part of it is true. what was a little unclear was originally the bloomberg article said that they might build of jeeps in china. that doesn't appear to be true. it will build some for the chinese market, but also, there is still a risk that there will export these things. the italian story is a little more concerning because the need to get some cars built in factories that are underutilized in italy. during the conference call, the ceo for fiat made clear that they want to be building jeeps in italy. now, this story also -- gerri: come on. i hear you say that, and as an american i think a much use in italy. are we going to move our production? and me, that makes the sense to me. and are these even going toobe sold in the u.s.? >> they are saying that they want to export them. in fact, negotiat
this. so i don't think the politicking release stocks. you had the obama administration , his campaign, his surrogates. this election did not stop. down and not to, but it did not stop. gerri: which brings up the question, who gets the momentum now? coming into this event, this massive storm that has really paralyze this region, romney had the momentum. by friday, saturday who will have the big mark? >> i don't think this changes the momentum. it freezes it. a fourth of the country, everyone is preoccupied with there daily lives. nothing is changed in the fundamental dynamics of this race. put it out. the president of the united states is tied with romney 46 test 46. that is a dangerous number for the incumbent more than romney because if an incumbent is below 50% traditionally almost everyone who is not for him is either going to stay hoe of four for the challenger. obama at 46% shows he is slipping into underdog status as we spak. gerri: the me show you another, as long as you're talking polls, we have one, the national average. and obama is at 47%. i did he'd. gretchen, you know, he
creation begin and we have seen all of the jobs lost during the four years of the obama administration regained. that is what you are going to hear from president obama at 8:30 this morning when the jobs numbers come out. we are certain it will be positive, create 125,000 jobs. if it's less than 100, republicans are going pounce on that. if it's more than 150 or close to 200, obama administration is going to go on that. what you are going to hear about is the unemployment rate, 7.8%. it drops, probably going go to 7.9%. christine will explain why the job loss and creation numbers are different from unemployment. the bar chart is the more important number. the bottom line is, all you are going to hear is spend and we are going tell you what matters. it is going to be a deciding factor for many voters. >> the jobs number is a number you see. you have been on the ground in ohio. we want to know what it feels like there when it comes to jobs. what are people saying? >> reporter: yeah. so, you know ohio has been hard hit. i was in youngstown, the second biggest deal maker in the country aft
that the obama administration green lighted it. >> hold on, charles, those were gaffes in every single case that's what that person believed. only became a mistake when the backlash game and i know that andrea understands this having done campaigns as i do. and you have to know where voters are if you're not between 18 and 30, you don't get the ad. young voters are critical and many have not-- >> and you think this is a good ad? >> i think when you look at the fact, the ad it over 2 million hits on youtube where most of the young voters are-- >> some of the the vulgar things had millions of hits. is there no line, the office of the president of the united states, does it even care anymore about certain things or just pure desperation at this point? >> and charles, when mitt romney is not telling the truth about chrysler going to china, there's a lot to talk about here. so, there's a lot that's going on in in campaign that's up for debate and everyone can say where the line is. i think a lot of lines have changed and through every campaign cycle, that's a disappointment. but when you look at youn
reporting on the chaos in libya should be taken seriously and the obama administration should explain what happened. amazing welfare stat for you. co-host of the 5 bob beckel. first, it's a move on ad. you say. >> it's a ridiculous bad ad. web ad and michael moore associated with it you made the implication that you said this was somehow connected with the obama campaign. >> bill: i said it wasn't. i said the exact opposite. >> now didn't. you said you live by who your associations are. >> bill: wait, i said u to be fair, the obama administration most likely had nothing to do with the ad. >> then you went on to say you live with who you are associated with with. >> bill: we weren't talking about the obama pa people. we were talking about the democratic party. wait, beckel, you tried to spin my words. >> mr. beckel. >> you called miah mr. rove. you can't call me mr. beckel. >> you wear a belt i will start calling you mister. the democratic party associated with move on. that's the association that i was talking about. and you say? >> and i say it's ridiculous association there. fringe eleme
of perpetuating a quote, outrageous lie, in ads on the obama administration's auto industry bailout. the ads assert general motors and chrysler are adding jobs in china at the expense of workers in ohio. both g.m. and chrysler have protested. but the romney campaign insists the facts in the ads are accurate. syrian government forces stepped up widespread air assaults on opposition strongholds today, anti-government activists said, after a holiday ceasefire fell apart. amateur video showed mig fighter jets strike near a mosque on the outskirts of damascus. warplanes also pounded the north, in towns including dair al zour. two days of bombing have left at least 185 people dead. meanwhile, u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton called for a shakeup of the syrian opposition in its bid to oust president assad. she said it should include people who've been fighting on the front lines, not just activists who've lived outside of syria for decades. in china, a government think tank urged leadership to end the country's one-child policy. it recommends each family be allowed to have two children by 20
about the obama administration's regulations. and in the east, you have the philadelphia suburb philadelphia suburbs. romney is strong with republican voters. if suburban voters flip, romney has a real shot in the keystone state. >> if republicans are always worried about wasteful spending, this is a perfect example of wasteful spending. they don't spend any money in minnesota at all. >> one at a time. >> it's not that long ago. >> 1972 is the last time minnesota voted for a republican. >> i hate to say it, but it was richard nixon. now i've said it. robert costa, i want you to challenge my friend keith boykins. you're saying there's a horse race in michigan, and wisconsin. the numbers in wisconsin look even up. and in iowa, where the liberal des moines register just endorsed romney. so there could be some real midwestern upsets, huh? >> the point in wisconsin is true. keith boykins is right. wisconsin was wisconsin was boston by four points. the milwaukee suburbs, they went very strong for scott walker in that recall election this past summer. if that republican ground game is
that these were extraordinary requirements and he was supported by the obama administration's lawyer who also said what would happen if the court constitutionalized these requirements was that you would start having mini trials with expert witnesses and dogs would be put on trial to determine their reliability and it just wasn't necessary. the court seemed to have trouble trying to find what kind of requirements would ensuring reliability and therefore probable cause for a search. and justice sotomayor, for example, noted that there have been some recent studies that show these dogs aren't infallible. tre'sone that sheoted that had a 12% accuracy rate and she said she was a little troubled by that but it wasn't as clear in the house case that the justices were going to have a problem. >> woodruff: we're going to focus on the track record of those dogs. >> right, and it's hard to measure how reliable a trained dog is. >> woodruff: quickly, marcia, so there's a precedent here but the court is taking a whole other look at these two cases? >> yes, it is. it's never confronted head on a dog sniff of th
before unloading, that's supposed to expedite things and the obama administration has issued a temporary blanket waiver on the jones act which will allow additional oil tankers coming from the gulf of mexico to enter the ports up here. recall this was a big deal during katrina. the jones act requires all vessels carrying products between u.s. ports to fly under the u.s. flag, be built in the u.s., and be crude mostly be u.s. citizens the fact they're waiving that will hopefully expedite more fuel in here. what are they doing on the ground? trying to get the power to restored to gas stations that don't have power. you can't pump gas if you don't have power. power is restored to the terminals to get the fuel, of course, on to the trucks. that's a priority. now, there are trucks moving and there is gas here. the issue are those other two issues really kind of slowing things down and then by the way, we still have some of these huge massive refineries taken off-line trying to get them up and running but that could be a while as well. this part of the country consumes more oil, more gas, than
energy production in the u.s. and has been sharply critical of the obama administration's energy policies saying the u.s. needs to be on path for energy independence. >>> coming up on the news edge, being called by some the town that is forgotten amount look at the devastation at new york's staten island. >> a six hundred-pound marlin lands in a boat off the off of the coast of -- off of the coast of australia. the long battle. now for the struggle, they let the fish go back into the sea. president obama: there's just no quit i in america... and you're seeing that right now. over five million new jobs. exports up forty one percent. home values... rising. our auto industry... back. and our heroes are coming home. we're not there yet, but we've made real progress and the... last thing we should do is turn back now. here's my plan for the next four years: hbuilding on our manufacturingur boom;: boosting american-made energy; reducing the deficits responsibly by cutting where... we can, and asking the wealthy to pay a little more. and ending the war in afghanistan, so we can... do some nation
that is an improvement. the obama administration pledged they would drop down upon the great 5.4%. that certainly didn't happen. i'm curious as voters look at the newspapers tomorrow will the newspapers tell the truth that in this report touted as being positive wages went down. hourly earningwent down, hours worked went down. this is really a sad commentary if we have to interpret this somehow positively. gerri: clearly we have a long ways to go, wants you to hear something the president said today on the campaign trail and respond. here is the president. >> 2008 we were in the middle of two wars. today our businesses ha created nearly five and a half million new jobs and this morning we learned the companies hired more workers in october than any timm in the past eight months. gerri: you listen to that, he seems very proud of his record t the reality is we have 7.9% unemployment higher than a month ago. how do you respond? >> we have had 32 straight months of job growth and it is not hollowed, it is a strong growth to a can affect the outcf the worst economic crisis since the great depression. my fa

in the bush administration and there's always been a point of emphasis, if you will, on fema by the obama administration. i think frankly it won't have mattered who came into the presidency in the post katrina world there was going to be an emphasis on fema. you weren't going to let that get politicized. yes, it's a political appointee and you're going to have somebody who came with a background to do this stuff. so i think that they realize that it's a high-wire act, this emergency management business. and most of the time if you do a good job it's good politics. if you blow it, it's really bad politics. >> i agree. >> it can be unrecoverable politics. so this is a case where good politics and good public policy and good management all converge. it's good politics to do a good job. you're not playing one side against the other. >> you know, i've always thought that the democrats being the government party because they believe in government more than republicans owe a greater debt, a greater responsibility to be good at it, right? this is a little more ideological but it seems to me if th
